Sometimes you just want to indulge in some decadent chocolate dessert. Well, this is one that is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. Try to imagine it with a cup of hot coffee–mmmmmmmm!
2 cups butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 9″ pie shell
1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons sugar
Bake the pie shell according to the directions on your package. I use Pet-Ritz deep dish, but even a store brand works well.
While the pie shell is baking, get started on the filling:
Place the butter in a mixer at medium speed. Slowly pour in the sugar.
In a double boiler, melt the chocolate, stirring constantly. Let cool for a few minutes before adding to the sugar mixture.
Add the vanilla.
Put the mixer speed on medium and add the eggs, one at a time, allowing 5 minutes of mixing between adding each egg.
Pour the filling into the pie shell (make sure it is cool by now).
Refrigerate for about 4 hours.
After the pie has been in the refrigerator for a while, whip the heavy cream together with the sugar. You can decorate the top of the pie with the whipped cream, or store in a bowl and put a dollop on each piece as you serve it.
